The Best Training Shoes For Athletes

If there is one piece of training apparel that can influence your performance it is footwear. If you are an athlete or an avid fitness enthusiast you already know this. You have probably tried every pair under the sun, searching for that perfect fit. It is the one piece of gear most athletes spend the most time researching and usually the most expensive piece of apparel you will spend money on.

The single most important factor when training and working out is to stay injury free. You may not think your training shoe has an impact on preventing injuries but the difference can be significant.

  • Does your shoe have the right base for the training you are doing?

  • What degree loft will work best to keep you injury free?

  • Can you quickly switch from running shoes to minimalist shoes?

  • Do you really need motion control or inserts in your shoes?

  • Do you need specific weightlifting shoes?
